 Do you live in or near a floodplain and would like to learn about flood proofing actions you can take to reduce flood risk and decrease flood damages? 

This is your chance to learn about different types of flood proofing techniques from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers National Nonstructural Committee. The flood proofing discussion will include topics such as elevating buildings, wet and dry flood proofing buildings, and relocation/acquisition. Federal and state agency representatives will be on hand to discuss grant programs that may be available to property owners to reduce their flood risk, as well as other floodplain management topics, such as the National Flood Insurance Program and Community Rating System.
